Economic Update: Capital for Worker Co-ops

This episode discusses US workers’ rising productivity even while wages have remained flat, US corporations evading taxes, a Gallup Poll on the poor US job picture, the redistribution of billionaires’ wealth and the rising corporate debt problem. The show also examines the ways and means of providing capital to worker co-ops, and why technical “progress” excites capitalists and worries workers.
